Upper Lip Laser Hair Removal

Laser lip hair removal is the benchmark method for permanent hair removal. Fast, painless and particularly effective, the technique is based on theemission of a beam that targets the black melanin of growing hairs, destroying their roots with heat. Laser liphair removal requires meticulous care and expertise. Epilium and its team put their experience and expertise at the service of patients and their expectations.

Why is there hair on the upper lip?

Hair on the upper lip is mainly bothersome for women. In fact, this lip hair is generally absent or discreet. Whether it’s a slight fuzz or a full-fledged moustache, the presence of this hair can have both aesthetic and psychological consequences.

In women, it’s usuallyhyperpilosity (hirsutism or hypertrichosis). This disorder is generally linked to hormonal changes that boost hair growth. Regular plucking with tweezers or wax may also have accelerated hair growth.

How does upper lip laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal involves sending a beam of light whose energy is absorbed by the melanin in the hair. This energy is transformed into heat in the hair root, destroying it for good.

The laser only works on hair in the anagen (growth) phase, the first stage of the hair cycle. To be effective on all the hair in an area, you need to schedule several sessions.

It’s also important to note that laser treatment is not effective on very light hair, since it targets melanin. In such cases, there is an alternative: high-frequency electric hair removal. After examining your skin, hair and perioral area, the Epilium team will propose a personalized treatment protocol.
